Question about kit color

I recently bought an unrelated trio of New Zealand rabbits - a black buck, a black doe and a white doe. I just found some kits - some black, some gray. Do the colors change as they get older? I didn't think NZ could be gray... does this mean one or more of the parents is a mix?

Can you post a pic of the kit? New Zealands can be blue, but if the kit is chinchilla, then it's likely there are genes from another breed in your herd.

This thread may be helpful.

Will black x black make blue, or black x white, or either combo? Just curious - the rabbits are in a colony setup, and I never see them doing anything... I'm not sure which one is the mother.
